[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken from the back of a bakkie (pick-up) while we cruised on the freeway. Hence the ISO of 400. The tractor looked so alone that I had to take the shot.

Unfortunately I do not know how the tractor ended up the way it did. I wonder though. Any Ideas?

Something very desolate about this. Good idea to do it in sepia. Adds to the atmosphere. Typical SA farm feeling. The dryness of winter.

Nice sepia Johan. You captured the feeling of abandoness without using human figures. Maybe it would be appropriate to crop some more in the lower part, although this way there is also a smooth flow of perspective.


Hi Johan,

Nice fitting title and interesting subject. Done from the back of a what???? ... a bakkie?? :) I might consider cropping a little bit at the left, not much. Very well done.
